Michael Jackson

Nose
Perfumy. Hint of burnt orange.
Palate
Surprisingly rich, vanilla toffee flavours, drying to flowery, herbal (camomile?) notes.
Finish
Slightly short, drying. New wood.
Comment
An interesting interplay of flavours. Comes to rather an abrupt halt.

Dave Broom

Nose
Initially not much, then sweet, perfumed, floral, malt; lemon, sesame oil. Water brings out vanillins, sweet oak, tobacco. Complex yet discreet.
Palate
Long, ripe with sweet fruitiness. Flows beautifully, mouth-coating nut oil, a hint of resinous oak, honey, nuts, spice. Charming and mouth-filling.
Finish
Dry but not woody.
Comment
Great balance between sweet fruit, nutty flavours and oak. Very good.
